What's New

This release provides an upgrade to an Okta core library that is used for SAML processing. This change is invisible to your end users.

This library is used to process OAN apps, Mobile apps, O365 integrations, and inbound SAML. Okta has conducted extensive testing on the library to ensure complete compatibility with the replaced library. Because we could not test apps that you created or modified, we recommend that you test SSO in the following areas in this preview sandbox environment.

If you encounter SAML sign on issues, we have a rollback strategy for your org which can be implemented immediately. If you have issues or concerns about this upgrade please contact Okta support.


Special Announcements

Deprecation Announcement for iOS 8

Okta will end support for iOS 8 on November 13, 2016. When support for this version ends, existing end users will not be affected. Users attempting new installs on iOS 8 will see a notice stating that their OS version is no longer supported. After November 13th, Okta will chiefly support iOS versions 9.x and 10.x.

We're Auto-Enabling the New Okta Sign-In Experience

The New Okta Sign-In Experience currently is available to all orgs which have chosen to enable it in Settings > Appearance > Sign-In Configuration. If you have not done so already, we recommend that you enable the feature now to let your users become familiar with it. Beginning November 15, 2016 Okta will enable the feature automatically for all new and existing Preview orgs that have not enabled it already.
